Still Not Sure What I Think of Deadpool

It's easy to forget that the next film in Fox's X-Men series isn't this summer's X-Men: Apocalypse. Instead, they're going off the reservation a bit and giving us Deadpool, based on the long-running "Merc with the Mouth" who's been a cult fave since his inception in the early '90s. While star Ryan Reynolds definitely feels like a born-to-it choice to play the wisecracking title character, I'm still not sure how I'm feeling about the Tim Miller-directed film, even after seeing the gratuitous red band trailer that dropped yesterday AM. That said, there's some pretty funny stuff in there, and I do applaud Fox for being willing to do something different within the superhero genre in general and the X-franchise in particular, so let's see where we land when Deadpool debuts Valentine's Day weekend. Watch the trailer after the jump, and tell me what you think:
